Since its been a long time since I installed fedora on a physical PC (mostly
VMware), I have not done this. However, here are some of the links I found
which might help you move forward.
>From what I read, with the new kernel 2.6, floppy install is not possible,
at least with Fedora. (link 1). But there are other websites which provide a
work around for this issue. (link 3 and 4)
Hope this helps. Have fun.
